About the May 5, 2023 First Friday exhibition opening:

The International Quilt Museum is pleased to feature a showcase of art quilt history developed by the Studio Art Quilt Associates. Layered & Stitched: 50 Years of Innovative Art showcases 50 art quilts by renowned master artists. Seminal works show the evolution of the art quilt from the earliest pioneers creating during the 1960s through to today’s artists experimenting with new forms, new materials, and new digital technologies.

Trace the development of this exciting art form as it developed from isolated makers into an international movement involving thousands of artists spanning the globe.

Participating as a board member is rewarding, fun and educational. You would learn more about the museum and all it does, get previews of exhibitions, and create fundraising events to benefit the IQM.
